Every week I’ll introduce you to a book that’s on my extensive wishlist. Sometimes they are new books, but quite often they aren’t. Let me know if you’ve read it, and what you think. Please also join in and link up your On My Wishlist post each week.
The Reason is You by Sharla Lovelace
Dani Shane just wants her daughter to have what she never did—a normal life. But “normal” leaves the equation when sixteen year old Riley is found talking to Dani’s only friend, Alex–who’s been dead for forty years.
In the small river town of Bethany, Dani never fit in. Being different pushed her to the fringes of society, and even leaving town for two decades didn’t stop the talk. Now that she’s back, so is Alex. Mischievous and sexy and still hot enough to melt her shoes. Between his popping in at inopportune moments and having to hide her daughter’s new talent, Dani fears that her plans for staying under the radar may be short lived.
As Dani scrambles to get solid footing under her family, secrets buried for forty years begin to unearth themselves. She and Alex have always been connected, but he is hiding something. The computer is making her hear things. Weird memories that she doesn’t recognize keep popping up in her mind. Then there’s that little thing she’s not telling her daughter yet. Like that some of the people she sees aren’t breathing…
Under the radar. That’s what this book seems like. None of my Goodreads friends have reviewed it, and only 14 of them have shelved it all. With an overall high rating, this seems like a book that more people need to hear about.
I was originally drawn to the cover. It makes me tilt my head to look at it. When you look at it and read the summary, it almost seems contemporary, but it has a strong paranormal angle featuring ghostse. Mixing up the genres while offer intrigue and excitement. Is it any wonder it’s on my wishlist?
